I have been watching the new bond movie today, is there anyone else who have seen it? The story was nice, the effects great as always, and the action "unrealistic" as always but that's why we like bond ;) but i liked the fact that it took place in 3 diffrent countries, for once they had some humour too btw. Halle Berry was good as the bond girl too. 4/5 stars defenitely something to go and watch :)

Like the scene where she gets out of the sea wet, the screen switches to Bond and then goes back to Berry and she is dry

No, this is the Halle Era of Bond..

Dec 1st, 2002, 02:11 PM
Can't remember seeing that one actually. I had to research just now.:p

Dec 1st, 2002, 02:13 PM

Starred Connery and Ursula Andress.

That's what the research told me.:cool:

I'm not so sure a spin off is going to work. I'm always weary of these types of things.

I'm unable to follow the matches. The last cricket matches I watched, Brian Lara was still captain and Courtney Walsh and Curtley Ambrose were the top bowlers. Walsh went to my high school (years ahead of me of course).:)

From the web site I see that they play Bangladesh next in ODI.:cool:

Ooh, I see he's Jamaican too, and not bad looking at all. At all.:D

Marlon Samuels
by Imran Khan

AFTER Marlon Samuels had made his first Test ton a few weeks ago a feature appeared on this website acclaiming it as "Marlon's Masterful Maiden". He has now scored his maiden ODI century.

Samuels' first ODI hundred was nothing short of beautifully phenomenal. He elegantly pummeled his way to 108 off a measly 75 balls. In his trademark unflustered style he played so flawlessly that it seemed as though he was guiding the ball, not with the bat but with his hands after taking bulls-eye aim at the boundary rope.

He seemed to have calculated perfectly the time it would take the fielders to reach the ball where he wanted it hit, then gracefully guided it so that it will beat the hopeless fielder by just an agonizing second or two.

Most of his 11 fours were perfectly placed drives straight down the ground. They first evaded the bowlers' desperate clutch then bisected the hapless long on and long off with timing so exquisite, they would both cross each other just as the ball bumped off the boundary rope.

Another innings, half as good as this will surely put him in a truly mystical category of masterful batsmen, the likes of present day wonders Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar.


He had usually rational and discriminating analysts instantaneously bracketing him with Lawrence Rowe and George Headley, two legends from his native Jamaica.

As Sir Viv Richards watched the cultured carnage, he must have flipped mental pages to recall a similar innings he had played. He would not have remembered many which can compare, such was the towering quality of Samuels' display of classic express batsmanship.

Marlon Samuels - pure immortal perfection.

Samuels was no human batsman during his ton, he was pure immortal perfection. World-class batsmen dream of playing innings such as he played in driving the Windies total up to 315 for 6. His class was oozing, he never slogged, it was millimeter-precision placement and immaculate timing. He never put a foot wrong, never brought the bat down in even a slightly out-of-place position. Everything hit the willow right on the sweet spot, five times he placed the sweet spot so flawlessly on the ball that it went crashing into the stands, mostly the upper decks.

Marlon Samuels' above all gave a flawless lesson in 'how the make a mockery of a bowling attack'. He never jolted, was never under pressure and always dictated the state of affairs. So domineering was he that the usually ultra-aggressive Ricardo Powell was reduced to a frozen bystander. In a partnership of 109 off 10.1 overs with Samuels, Powell contributed only 30. He took 24 balls as he rocketed from 50 to 100.


It was the first time an ODI match was being played at the Vijayawada ground and if the crowd there sees another impeccably scintillating century such as Samuels' they can count themselves supremely blessed.

The dilemma Samuels has presented the Windies selectors is: who goes when Brian Charles Lara returns? The more they have this problem, the happier Windies fans will be. The more Marlon Samuels and others have to prove themselves, the higher the level of the team's play will surge. The better the team plays, the better will be the results. The better the results the closer the team will be to being world beaters again.

And if and when that day comes Marlon Samuels is very likely to be one of the chief batting magicians making bowling attacks and their balls disappear with graceful splendor just as he did the Indians at Vijayawada earlier today. New words will have to be coined to more fittingly describe his unique brand of sophisticated sabotage.

Ahem, as usual?

She was ok. She was only in one scene. I'd say she managed.:)

Cool. Thanks Knopfler6:cool:

yeah it's a good film, Hubcap already has a pirate of it and he burned me a copy.

it's first class entertainment ESPECIALLY Halle Berry.

the only bit that sucks is the Madonna theme song

Yes, very impressive. Especially Drakes 4-18.

Question: I see it says Windies lead 1-0 in the three-match series and one match was rained out. So will they only play one more? It could end up in a tie, couldn't it?

Pamela, George would have been better as Bond? :confused:

I liked the Bond films from years ago. The ones in recent years have left alot to be desired, IMO.
